Our Cost -Call us for a quote.
Project cost are based on;
- test calls to a (NAPA) North American Numbering Plan TN at .005/min with 6 second rounding.
Monitoring cost are based on duration of agreement
- 5000 minutes = 250 calls (C) for 20 minutes (M) or 500 calls for 10 minutes or… It’s simply C * M = 5000 C-M.
- Overnight tests can be pre-tested in a small test and scheduled for full load as an unattended at the same price.
Call Frequency and Volume
- Quantity: We can generate as many as 500 calls at the same time and for as many calls as desired without prior reservation.
- Spacing: We can space calls from 10ms to 1 second apart and stay connected (ramp up)
- Modulation: We can call in chunks of say 50 calls, then 50 more for 100 concurrent calls, then 50 more for 150 concurrent calls.
- Ramp: You may want us to ramp 1 call per second while your team listens on separate calls. A failure in 90 seconds when be a failure at 90 simultaneous calls.
- Hang-up: Upon connect, after a set time, after a tone detection.

- Calls to one USA or any 800 (8xx) telephone number. Monitoring International numbers is priced separately.
- No term agreement exist. Cancel at any time.
We can perform any calling test you can imagine that is scientifically real and legal. It’s easier to just tell us what you want in an email and assume we can do it. This will become a performance agreement before you pay us.
Test Calling Sources
When we test, calls originate from:
- Denver Colorado on a variety of carriers.
- Washington DC or NYC on Level3.
- Richmond, VA on Comcast.
- 40 carriers of your choice with originating switch reported as a special request.
The call path may be subject to the telecom industry standard 12 midnight to 6am network maintenance windows. During these times, carrier maintenance may make test calls fail. Sometimes, carrier maintenance is actually the issue we find with monitoring! We choose to first detect it then maybe adjust the tests to not fail the test. For instance, we may monitor you on two separate 800 numbers taking two separate paths into your PBX. Maintenance would cause the test to fail to VoIP trunk A and thus you are alerted but from the call reports sent, you see your PBX answered the test call to VoIP trunk B. From this you could point the finger at the carrier and not your PBX. The carrier says their is nothing they can do. So, you adjust both 800 numbers to round robin terminate calls between to VoIP trunks A, then B. Now your system is more fault tolerant.
